I've been feeling really good this week. Usually when I feel good and have had a productive week, I reward myself with food. A frothy coffee, an ice cream cone, or a treat of some sort. However, I haven't done this since starting on this weight loss journey. When I feel like having, as Pooh Bear says, a little smackerel of something, I abstain. The thing is, I've spent years rewarding myself with food. Do I need to replace it with something else? Is the weight loss the reward in and of itself? Is rewarding oneself a selfish act that should be dropped altogether? The thing that was so cool about rewarding myself with food was that it felt great, I had a little time to myself while I consumed the treat and it was usually relatively inexpensive. So, I'm a little lost now when it comes to this issue. Your thoughts?
